Scope base for Striker? Login/Join

I decided to make a change and went from 3 Leupold split rings to 2 Burris Zee rings. Upon attaching the rings, I discovered the cross bolts and the slot in my existing Weaver type rail were a bad match. The slots in the rail are too wide, thinking I need a picatinny style. What base would you guys recommend? I want to stay with the Burris rings.

You can peel open one leg of the burris rings but, personally, I would get a steel base if your using steel rings. I've had entirely too much trouble putting aluminum and steel together...

I agree with Mike I have had trouble mixing metals. I would have a steel base made. It won't cost much and you will have better results.

The rings go onto my existing base just fine. It's the slots in the base that are too wide. The rings have a sloppy fit as the crossbolt is much smaller than the base slot. I agree, a steel base is the way to go. Just was looking for suggestions as to particular models and brands.

I have an EGW 20moa base on my Striker, works good with the Burris rings I have

Just push the rings up against the front of the slots, the recoil of the gun will not let them move backwards.

I'd agree with this IF you had a steel base. Those Burris rings WILL rock back and forth on a aluminum base, don't ask me how I know! laugh

I've not heard that before (or if I have, I forgot it nuts). I'm curious what type of calibers y'all have had this problem w/? I usually use the Weaver aluminum base for my XP's and Contender's and haven't noticed this problem. Maybe it's more prone w/ "heavy hitters", I've not shot the guns enough or maybe I've just been lucky so far. Confused I'm not doubting you guys on bit, just trying to figure it out. thumbup


Good luck and good hunting.
